One of DID's earlier works, and an impressive technical achievement that runs very nicely on a stock ST. It's very much a game with some flight sim trappings, though, as even on the hardest difficulty levels the flight model omits some absolute basics such as airspeed changing when diving and climbing, and I'm buggered if I could see flaps having any effect whatsoever.

If you find more hardcore flight sims (or even MicroProse stuff) too intimidating, this would probably be a good starting point, particularly with its lovely presentation, but hardcore propellerheads will probably crave something with a bit more depth before very long.
